Jet JJ-6CSX #1: What do I have to work with?

01-13-2011 12:31 AM by twoblacklabs | 11 comments »

I have just acquired an older Jet JJ-6CSX. Is it a Craigslist Gloat? Well that is yet to be determined. However I am quite certain that the description of “Almost New” in the ad wasn’t exactly accurate. But after several weeks of searching and a few days of haggling, I found myself driving 150 miles to trade a shotgun for a jointer. And after 150 miles, I wasn’t eager to return home empty handed. So I took the chance. What I ended up with was indeed a JJ-6CSX. howev...

The Art of Wood #4: Why Wood?

01-10-2011 09:13 PM by Rogue | 0 comments »

I like wood because you can put stuff in it. I don’t mean you can make a box and fill it with things. That’s not the kind of stuff I’m talking about. I mean the sort of stuff that makes us willing to change the worst baby diaper or ride your bike 50 miles a day out in the cold to train for a race. The stuff that makes you satisfied and at peace when you come home after a hard day’s work. Even though your body aches, your heart is well and warm. It’s more th...

Rebuilding the Bear #2: Christmas Delay

12-26-2010 11:33 PM by Jon McGrath | 2 comments »

Quick update = Christmas and all that comes with it put a damper on shop activity this past week. With that comes all the storage bins, etc. laying around, under, etc the saw and shop – so will get some good present photos during the next week. I did however find a picture of what this saw looked like brand new in 1986 only to find it is not the same, motor on mine mounts low but to the rear of stationary stand, while photos I find always show motor mounted directly underneath the saw, ...

Dust Extraction #1: Rectangular Ducting Will it work

12-20-2010 04:34 PM by Jamie Speirs | 7 comments »

I’m now looking at putting in ducting for my new shop. I know it is a bit early considering I may only get occupation by the 1st April 2011.I’m hoping to have the DC and power points fitted prior to moving in the machines.I’ve found a great 10” x 2” plastic section. It also comes in 4” x 2” To me this seems better than using round:It is easy to make junctionsInspection traps would be easierIt takes up very little space So my question to the know...

Rebuilding the Bear #1: Rebuilding 1986 Grizzly 18" Bandsaw

12-19-2010 05:42 AM by Jon McGrath | 3 comments »

Tonight it begins, the journey of my first major tool rebuild. A very dear friend of mine has given me a Grizzly 18” Bandsaw. It was his neighbors who used it for cutting pipe – he got is around 5 years ago from another guy who was a woodworker who had not used the saw for at least 10 years. At this point my new old saw was a purchase – not knowing what the original owner paid, but starting with number 2 owner – $500.00 then on my friends neighbor for $300.00 and a se...

Gramaphone Restoration Project #1: The Initial Teardown

12-07-2010 06:57 AM by Robster40 | 0 comments »

A good friend of mine had bought a Columbia Gramaphone at an auction a few years back and has had it sitting in his storage garage ever since. I’m not sure as to how old the actual unit is, but I could guess the 1930’s to 1940’s at best. It’s a pretty generic model and I suspect it wasn’t the deluxe unit by any means. Since he and I only met within the last year, he never bothered to do anything with it. When he found out that I was pretty good with refurbishi...
